I consider one of my strengths to be the ability to synthesize. Maybe that's what's behind this sketch/cartoon I did last weekend, while helping out at Wintergreen. Wintergreen is a retreat centre which offers a quiet, natural, place to go a little deeper into whatever your "community of interest" might be.
So, last week end as I chopped vegetables and washed dishes, I listened into a group from a local church taking the Alpha Course on Christianity. I took a few minutes, between runs to the compost pile, to do this sketch and then added the captions back at home.
I sent it on to the group and hope that they see it as intended - a sort of blurred time-frame snapshot of their session.
This aligns my life-long desire to be an editorial cartoonist and attraction to urban sketching as story-telling. I think I'll use this device again.
